Act Like Elvis, Actually BE Elvis

Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. is giving Elvis’ fans a chance to win an exclusive trip to Memphis for Elvis Week 2012 to co-host online daily updates. In other words, it's another chance for YouTubers to show what they've got!

The “Co-Host Elvis Week with Memphis Jones Contest” begins today and submissions will be accepted until June 6, 2012 at 9:59 AM ET. To enter, fans can submit their videos to YouTube demonstrating their love of the king and showing why they would be the ultimate Elvis Week co-host. Then fill out the form at with a link to your YouTube video and be featured on the Elvis YouTube Channel in the Memphis Jones Gallery. I find it kind of funny that Elvis began his career and Memphis, and now you can cohost with someone named Memphis. Maybe it's because I have the maturity of a 12-year-old.

Of course, you're gonna get a package full of swag if you win. In addition to winning round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, a rental car, $500 cash and VIP tickets for two to all the Elvis Week events, the winner will help host Memphis Jones with daily reports from inside Elvis Week 2012 (i.e., the real prize for someone wanting to be famous). The co-host will go backstage and help with interviews with many of the celebrities and musicians in town for the 35th anniversary. Seems like a pretty cool gig.

On June 7, 2012, semifinalists will be announced on and Elvis fans around the world will have the opportunity to vote for the co-host they most want to see reporting from Memphis. The voting period will end on June 13th at 9:59 AM ET.  The winner will be announced on June 14, 2012 and the winner must be able to be in Memphis from August 13 - 18, 2012.

Enter now by filling out the form at and submitting your YouTube video. Right now. Or before June 6. Whatever. Videos will be judged based on personality and creativity. So MAKE IT FUNNY.
